Hello all my Taken by Storm Customers and Prospective Customers.
It has been a while since I blogged. I am sorry. Life has been hectic since
Fosta and Sesta as I am sure you are well aware of for yourselves.
I want to once again remind you of the importance of strong SEO.
As we watch ad sites become less and less effective as a method of being found online
your website ( as I said LONG before this happened) will become your ad.
SEO ( search engine optimization) is how people find us.
As most of you know I myself am an escort and this week along I have
seen a huge increase in the amount of men who have finally decided to hit
Google and Bing in search of companionship. My search engine referrals to my
own personal escort site are way up.
In other news...
So many of you have reached out to me just to have someone to vent to, to talk
to about everything that is going on. Many have turned to vanilla real life jobs to
make ends meet as many of us including myself have seen way fewer numbers of
actual escort clients.
I am fortunate in that I work for an agency in California that employs about 11 ladies.
I do web work for them, SEO for them and am the booking and appointment setter assistant
to the owner. So I have survived this and am so grateful that my reputation and strong
business ethic has paid off for me. Good things do happen if you hang in there!
I want all of you to be encouraged and to continue to work on ways to reinvent yourselves.
We all know that "the oldest profession on Earth" is not ever going anywhere. It is all about
finding new ways to market and being open to new concepts.
If you need help with #marketing , #branding, #screeningassistant, a new #website or
#mentorship feel free to contact me , or hire me.

Have a great weekend.
That's today's topic. I had gone months with very little stress for the first time in years.
Oh how amazing that was. It was so relaxing to just be working, paying bills on time, spoiling myself and planning for my upcoming tour.
I hadn't felt so confident and fancy free in years. Then WHAM FOSTA/SESTA happens.
Fortunately for me I do have my web design business and assisting business.. but it has really left me stressed and trying to maneuver things for my upcoming tour. I am hoping and praying that Eros and Slixa, P411 and other ad venues stay up long enough me to be able to pull of my tour and retire in peace.
It is tough telling others to be calm and to not worry when I myself have concerns, however I do know that I am blessed to have a secondary income. I know it is absolutely horrifying for others at this time. So I definitely don't want to come off as a griping , when I have lots to be grateful for. I just know that touring when you aren't even sure what ad venues are still going to be helpful is a bit unnerving. But I am not a quitter and have already invested so much money and time into planning this , that it must go on.
However, the schedule may change. For that I am sorry and apologize but I have really had to kind of mentally regroup for more than one reason.
This last month I have been so very busy with website work, assisting etc ( again no complaints, please keep hiring me lol) that I have become mentally exhausted and needed to take time for me lately. I often just get so consumed with being everyone else's answer and voice of reason that I forget I need self care and help sometimes myself. If I seem rude, or came off
rude to any of you. I am not meaning to be rude. It is just that many of you are stressed out, and anxious and scared ( I get it) but that stress then comes with you when you contact me, or begin doing business with me and I am not a rush type person. I am an organized, calculated,take my time and do it right kind of person. I do not like to feel rushed or pressured. As companions
yourselves those of you reading this I am sure you can understand that.
So my matter of fact demeanor and me politely reminding you to give me time and space to do my job is not me being rude. It is me keeping my mental and physical health in tact which is something I have to do.
Let's all pray for a less stressful week and compassion for each other as we move forward in our daily regimens. This too shall pass...
I know you all know me to be a fair, genuine ,professional web professional and escort.
As we all know the rights of everyone on the internet are being challenged and I am sure most of you all are aware by now of the new ridiculous laws that will pretty much make it illegal to host sites of sex work, our websites etc on US soil.
I offer most of you hosting thru me and will continue to do so. BUT I will have to move all our sites offshore to ensure myself as well as all of you, do not end up having our sites shut down.
I host close to 20 sites. Transferring hosting offshore is not going to be an issue BUT paying migration for every site to servers will cost up to 100 per hour per site.
I am giving this email notice to you so that you all can be prepared to contribute 100 towards moving your site offshore. Id love to be able to afford to pay migration for everyone but its just not possible.
Once I find out the safest, best offshore hosting company who I feel I can trust with my business I will contact you all to share the info.
Its a damn shame we cannot work and thrive in peace. The US govt really sucks now days.
I will be emailing you with an update by the end of next week.
But this is something we must do to protect everyone site and our right to work.
Ill be in touch, with options as soon as I can.

I give all of you the option to wait it out. I just need to make you aware so that should anything occur prior to when we expect. I am not to blame if sites disappear. I plan on moving mine early and back them all up. I will backup everyone elses too. But since we have no way of knowing when or why i wanted to inform.
I didn't want to wait till it possibly happened and then have everyone wondering what occurred.
